Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: Mr. Burns scathingly tells Smithers to "just give [Bart] a nickel and let's get going", showing his obvious lack of concern for Bart's safety.
** Marge comparing the "hardships" of Bart's injuries to the $5 she pays him to take out the trash every week. While Dr. Nick did exaggerate Bart's injuries and Homer's lawsuit was frivolous, Marge seems remarkably unconcerned about the fact that Bart was injured at all after the hub-bub died down.

* BackhandedApology: Zigzagged. Though Marge genuinely feels bad about ruining Homer's lawsuit, she words it as wanting to "apologise for doing the right thing".



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Smithers was the only one who was actually concerned about Bart's safety during the initial hit. When Burns tells his side of the story, he switches and exaggerates this scene word for word.

* GrayAndGrayMorality: Mr. Burns is just as wretched as ever and was completely unconcerned when he hit Bart. However, Homer's lawsuit against him is [[FrivolousLawsuit completely frivolous]] as Bart's injuries weren't particularly grievous or expensive which is why Burns' win doesn't make him a KarmaHoudini. Everyone's in the wrong here.

* NeverMyFault: Homer refused to take Mr. Burns' offer, and Marge admits that she doesn't like the situation they're in, including Homer's greed and "phony doctors". Burns overhears this, and has Marge up to the stands to confess everything. Homer now isn't sure if he loves her anymore for blowing their chance at $1 million.

** Vocal example: Lionel Hutz sounded more like Troy [=McClure=] in this episode, no doubt because Phil Hartman was still [[VocalEvolution finding his character.]]

* PragmaticVillainy: Mr. Burns doesn't fire Homer because of the media backlash he would likely suffer as a result. He has to be convinced by Smithers first, though, as he initially [[ImagineSpot imagines]] that he'll be regarded as a hero.
